Spend the Season with SICSA

Thanks to you, more than 1,600 pets will spend the holidays with their new families this year!

With your support, we can send even more pets home in time for the holidays!  Whether you choose to adopt a new best friend, welcome a foster pet into your home, participate in one of our holiday fundraisers, or donate toward the care of animals in need, you can change their lives for the better. Check out some of the ways you can get involved below and help us make this their best holiday season yet!



Help us provide our pets and those in need in our community with food, shelter, and medical care throughout the winter. Your gift will help us give dogs and cats the resources they need to have a happy holiday season full of the love and care they deserve!

Deck the Paws


Honor, remember, and celebrate the pets and people you hold dear by helping SICSA Deck the Paws! When you make a donation, we'll add your loved one's name to either a snowflake, or a personalized paw print ornament you can take home.
